25th Anniversary Collection


In honor of our 25th anniversary, Women’s Health Issues has selected a sample of some of the best work we’ve published since our launch in 1990. The list below does not include the winners of our annual Charles E. Gibbs Leadership Prize, which already receive special recognition (click here to read past winners).

We are making the manuscripts in this 25th Anniversary Collection free to read without a subscription for 30 days, until January 22, 2016. Click on the links below to read important research on a wide variety of women’s health issues. Studies address health conditions from HIV to heart disease; disparities in care and health outcomes; specific populations, from veterans to women with disabilities; reproductive health; gender-based violence; healthcare costs and financing; and more.
